Social Networks

 

Easily implement free WiFi access with a preferred social network. Your users will start browsing when they login with their social account, and you’ll get name and email to use in your marketing campaigns.

To enable it, go to Features and enable Social Networks.

Click on the Configure button.

A new window will give you the ability to select which social media will be allowed and to configure API over which it will be used.

Customization

To change login buttons for the social networks please use the following options:

Choose round or rectangle button type and select Large if you prefer larger buttons.

Type the header text which is placed on top of all buttons or leave
#LOGIN-WITH-SOCIAL#
to auto-translate in the user language configured on the user device.

If you change it, auto-translate will be disabled and will display the same wording for all languages. Type space character if you want to remove all text and auto-translate.

Press on Save button to apply changes.

To enable Social Login, it is required to create an “app” for each of the social networks. Please follow instructions to get a Login ID and Secret for each network.

To create your own Google API, login on your Google account, go to Google API manager and follow instructions for Google API creation.

To create your own Facebook API, login on your FB account, go to Facebook for developers section and follow instructions for Facebook API creation.

To create your own LinkedIn API, login on your LinkedIn account, go to LinkedIn Developers section and follow instructions for Linkedln API creation.
